I bought this skirt off the lovely Jazmine back in May and when it arrived and I unwrapped it from it's beautiful packaging, I was stumped. I loved the colour and the volume but I wasn't sure how to style it so it disappeared to the back of the wardrobe unloved and unworn.
I refuse to be defeated though and so I pulled it out today to try with my new favourite top... I picked this up in my favourite charity shop and it has proven so versatile, adding that little bit extra to any outfit. This outfit turned out to be so so comfortable and I was surprised at how easy the skirt was to wear.
|Skirt: Marks & Spencer via Jazmine, top: Warehouse via chairty shop, belt: vintage Laura Ashley, shoes: Office, bag: Fiorelli (gift)|
Usually I would tuck my top into a high-waisted skirt but I left it untucked and belted it for a bit more definition... For some reason, the hemline of this top, with the skirt reminds me of a tulip...anyone else?!
A pop of red lipstick to top it all off! I never used to wear sleeved tops but recently I have been drawn to them, especially if they are sheer like this...
Outtake of the day comes courtesy of me trying to show how swooshy the skirt is, I love how my legs look about 2cm long, haha!
How would you have styled this? Do you like a sartorial challenge?
